    Strum lightly & it's nice & clean, strum hard & its Marshall-esque. Very touch sensitive. And you can swap out the tubes easily for different tones/gain.









    I was interested in the English Muffin when it was first released, particularly Peter Stroud's video, but it dropped off the radar rapidly. I'm going to look into it again. Thanks.

      Forgot to mention my Yardbox. Coupled with my Tele, it gets pretty close to Jeff Beck's rude sounds from his Yardbirds days.

        Wasn't huge on them until I picked up a Fulltone '69 MKII on a whim. Now I'm certainly a convert, love that pedal for low gain fuzzy goodness.

          Now it is my favourite pedal and I don't think I'd be happy without it




          You might like this, its kind of a mix of fuzz and distortion and can even be used as an overdrive on lower gain settings-great pedal



          And of course, how can you not like the Big Muff?

            Just curious, exactly what year was it that stomp boxes became referred to as pedals? There is no pedal on a stomp box yet they're called pedals. They're even put in pedal boards that often don't have a pedal(wah wah, volume, etc.) in them.




            Actually, I believe they were known as pedals for a long time before the term stomp boxes was born.

              I have EH fuzzes, a Swollen Pickle Mk.II, even a Dano Cool Cat fuzz. I love them all. Very useful, versatile pedals. I tend to like the silicon fuzzes a little better

                  I had a Univox Fuzz that had a switch to choose either fat or hard edged tone. I wish I still had it.

                      The Muff Pi WTW is a very cool pedal. I love mine.

                        That's the vid that clinched for me too. The Pharaoh is the central ingredient in my tonal recipe - juices up the amp nicely and makes it crunch the way I like.

                          ...and now for something a little different...



                          This is a Trostsky overdrive with a couple minor mods, stacked with a GuitarPCB Stage 3 booster.











                          So why different? If you're familiar with the Trostky, it's a modified Electra boost circuit using an old Soviet silicon transistor and germanium clipping diodes. Long story short, it's kinda fuzzy. I increased the input signal and decreased the clipping threshold at the diode stage, and voila' FUZZ! What a gloriously articulate and sparkly fuzz, though. It's like a nice OD and a Si fuzzface running in parallel. hit the boost, and SOLO! It's a nice combination, and a relatively simple build, once you get past wiring two circuits in one medium-sized box...

                            love to hear some clips of your pedals if you get the time

                              Heh. I'd love to make a bunch, but I have 5 little girls running around here that show up on anything micced



                              I'll see what I can do with the next batch; it'll be worth making clips of. Think hybrid Fuzz Face + Rangemaster with a Big Muff EQ stack.

                                Definitely likes me some fuzz. I only own 2 fuzz pedals though. Of course I only have 1 of every other type of effect/stomp so it's by far the effect I own the most of



                                The VFE Fiery Red Horse is my main unit with a good amount of versatility. For $30 I'm also pretty pleased with my BBE Free Fuzz too.
